Here’s some news that those “in the know” know very well:

Mansfield history sells.

Just a few hours after being listed on a national site for the marketing of older residential properties available for purchase, an update shares that the property in question is already in a pending or contingent sale situation.

The Prairie and/or Crafstman Style-influenced house, designed by noted Mansfield architect Vernon Redding, was previously the subject of this Landmark of Mansfield post back in 2019. The 608 Park Avenue West property was home to Rufus and Susanna Kern. More about the Kerns can be found in our post.

Kern House, 608 Park Avenue West

Earlier this week, the house was listed on the Old House Dreams website, which features available real estate which might appeal to a national audience of “old house enthusiasts.” The page features numerous photos of the Kern House exterior and interior; the interior includes numerous built-ins and exposed wood characteristic of high quality houses from that period.

The listing can be found here.

The listed price for the 4 bedroom, 2 bath house was $139,000. Several of those commenting remarked on the value represented by the property at that price.

And, as noted above, the post was updated on Friday to reflect a “pending or contingent sale” status.
